Work in field of literacy : I WAS SELECTED A NATIONAL SERVICE VOLUNTEER OF NEHRU YUVA KENDRA, BAREILLY(UP) IN 1988. SINCE THAN UPTO NOW I AM CLOSELY ASSOCIATED TO ADULT EDUCATION & LITERACY. I WORKED HARD FOR MAKING THE RURAL YOUTHS LITERATE WITH THE HELP OF YOUTH CLUBS OF NEHRU YUVA KENDRA, BAREILLY . DISTRICT ADULT EDUCATION OFFICER ALSO HELPED ME. I JOINED JAIL SERVICE AS DEPUTY JAILOR IN 1994. NOW I AM JAIL SUPERINTENDENT. IN THE JAIL OF BADAUN, MORADABAD, BULANDSHEHAR, ETAWAH, GAUTAM BUDHNAGAR AND NOW IN FIROZABAD I HAVE WORKED HARD TO LITERATE THE PRISONERS. IN EACH JAIL WHERE EVER I WAS POSTED I TRIED TO ACHIEVE THE AIM OF 100% LITERACY. IN THIS REGARD I SUCCEEDED TO LARGE EXTENT IN THE JAIL OF GAUTAM BUDHANAGAR AND FIROZABAD.

No of Beneficiaries : 4600

Social Impact : AS FAR AS PRISONERS ARE CONCERNED, I CAN SAY THERE ARE SOME PRISONERS WHO COMMITTED A CRIME BUT DUE TO ILLITERACY , THEY DID NOT KNOW THAT THE WORK THEY ARE DOING WAS A CRIME UNDER LAW. THEY COMMITTED A CRIME INNOCENTLY. THIS IS WHY LITERACY IS MUST TO ESTABLISH A PEACEFUL AND CRIME FREE SOCIETY. THE PRISONERS WHO HAVE BEEN MADE LITERATE IN JAIL, ARE STUDYING THE BOOKS OF THEIR RESPECTIVE RELIGIONS AND THEREFORE THEY HAVE BECOME GOD FEARING ALSO. THEY HAVE TAKEN VOW NOT TO COMMIT ANY CRIME IN FUTURE AND AFTER BEING RELEASED FROM THE JAIL THEY WOULD ESTABLISH THEMSELVES AS AN IDEAL PERSON OF THE SOCIETY.

Fund Outlay : 100000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : I NEVER RECEIVED THE HELP IN CASH. SOME NGOS AND INDIVIDUALS HELPED ME BY PROVIDING THE MATERIAL SUCH AS BOOKS , NOTE BOOKS ,PENCILS PENS, ROLLER BOARDS, SHARPENERS AND ERASERS ETC. I ALWAYS MOTIVATED THE EDUCATED PRISONERS TO TEACH THE ILLITERATE PRISONERS. I SUCCEEDED IN IT.GOVT. HELP WAS ALSO RECEIVED BUT IT WAS TOO LITTLE.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : IF I AM AWARDED WITH THIS PRESTIGIOUS AWARD THE OTHER JAIL OFFICIALS WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO DO EXCELLENT WORK FOR REFORMATION OF PRISONERS. I ALWAYS SAY THAT THE ROLE OF JAIL OFFICIALS IS OF A CUSTODIAN BUT MORE IMPORTANT ROLE OF THEM IS OF A REFORMER. IT IS OUR PRIME DUTY TO REFORM A PERSON HANDED OVER TO OUR CUSTODY. TODAY JAIL IS A REFORMATION HOME, NOT A TORTURE HOUSE. IF WE REFORM A CRIMINAL, IT MEANS THAT THIS A BEGINNING OF THE REFORMATION OF A GENERATION. THIS AWARD WILL PROVIDE A MILE STONE IN REGARD OF REFORMATORY WORKS IN JAIL. IT WILL HELP ME TO DO MY WORK OF LITERACY WITH NEW ZEAL.
